NASA will make its spacecraft crash into an asteroid’s moon, Dimorphos, on purpose to see what happens to its velocity in space It is expected that the moon’s motion will change by 1% Also, it would shorten the revolution period by nearly seven minutes.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is proposing to crash a spacecraft into an asteroid’s moon to investigate what happens to its orbit. DART, NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test mission, is scheduled to launch in November. This will be accomplished using a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
Dimorphos, a small moon orbiting the asteroid Didymos, is the goal of the mission Didymos is a NEO, or Near-Earth Object (NEO) are celestial bodies whose orbits bring them within 30 million miles of Earth.
What people are saying?
Sriram Is this safe? What if something malfunctions in SpaceX? That rocket has failed many times, even exploded be4 takeoff. How can a small group of ppl decide fate of planet? What if Asteroid changed direction towards Earth?
Get United completely agree, Who gave them authority to decide this, everything is controlled by MOTHER NATURE This is not at all negativity i request think again and again, it’s just like object in rear glass r closer than u think it might be true for ur act as well, it might affect.
